‘Wine healthier than beer’ myth says Camra

Have your say

MOST people wrongly believe wine is healthier than beer, a study has revealed.

A survey of 1,000 adults carried out by the Campaign for Real Ale (Camra) revealed that two-thirds of the respondents thought drinking wine was the most healthy, compared with just 13 per cent for beer.

The campaign group claimed it is a “myth” that wine is healthier than other alcoholic drinks, pointing to research showing that the effect of drinking on health often depends on other aspects of lifestyle.

The chairman of Camra, Colin Valentine, added: “In moderation, beer is just as healthy as wine.”
